Acts 18:9-11

August 5, 2013

Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. (Acts 18:9-11)
      Lord Jesus, help us hear your words of assurance so that we may speak boldly in our communities as you desire us to speak.

      Holy Spirit, give us ears to hear what you are saying to us.

      Father, we are in your hand — help us set aside all fear and do the task you have given us to do. Thank you.

Yemen-islands

August 5, 2013

Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise from the ends of the earth,
you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it,
you islands of the Yemen, and all who live in them.
Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices;
let the settlements rejoice.
Let the people of Jesus sing for joy;
let them shout from the mountaintops.
Let them give glory to the Lord
and proclaim his praise in the islands.
The Lord will march out like a champion,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.
His name is above every name on the Socotra Archipelago, Abd al Kuri, Jabal al-Tair Island, Kamaran, Saso Island, Zubair Group, and Zuqar Island. At His name, every knee shall bow in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.
Sing to the Lord a new song.

Adapted from Isaiah 42:10-13

From USA Today: Mountains in Yemen number 179, making the country one of the most mountainous regions on the Arabian Peninsula in a relatively confined area of 214,000 square miles. Peaks range from as low as about 1,640 feet to as high as more than 10,000 feet. Many peaks are home to villages carved out in rock.

Sing, O heavens, and joy, O earth! Sarawat Mountains, Western Highlands, Central Highlands, Haraz Mountains, Jebel Al-Lawz, Jabal Al-Qullah, Jabal Shakhab Ammar, Jabal ’Ayban, Jabal Rihab, Jabal Kanwab, Jabal an-Nabi Shu’ayb –break forth into song! Encompass Yemen with praise for the Lord has comforted His people and will have compassion upon His afflicted. Rejoice! We say, Rejoice!
Isaiah 49:13
